Saturnine Release Celebration & Reading says
Cosmic Thug Press is proud to announce Volume One of the Pocket Poetry Series, Tristen Gaspadarek’s debut collection, Saturnine.

We will be celebrating the release of Saturnine and the launch of the Pocket Poetry Series at Howlin’ Books (1702 Eighth Ave. S., Nashville, Tenn., 37203) on Tuesday, November 15, at 6 p.m. The release will feature a reading by Tristen & special guest (!!!), and the event is free, all-ages and open to the public.

Saturnine marks the exciting arrival of a new voice in contemporary poetry. Gaspadarek’s poetry takes on a dystopian world where apathy uncovers empathy. Where, “the heart speaks kindness through the ugliness sometimes.”

Filled with 18 poems that span from the “green carpet hills by San Francisco” to the “cold hard streets of Chicago,” Gaspadarek’s collection brims with a kaleidoscope of characters — roadies, whitewashers, lost boys and big tits mary. Where existential dreamers in “Plastic Land” struggle to make sense of a modern age, “protesting the cruelest injustice of [their] day, the sickening smell of the Bourgeois Bouquet.”
